Looking at the New Scientist web site, I see in the index of the forthcoming issue, this:
When the children you study unwittingly put their lives at risk, should you step in? Years after returning from Vietnam, Rachel Burr still lives with the dilemma
Now, I don't know how many Rachels Burr there may be in this world, but the only one I've met had indeed been in Vietnam. So full marks to me for spotting the name, when I was actually looking for something else. And simonb, pass my congratulations along on the publication.

(BTW, simonb - your lj user info may be a smidgeon in need of update.)

My sister is indeed published in the latest New Scientist - she has also just had a book related to the article published.

I'll get around to updating my user info at some point - we've only just got the net back!
